Everyone wants to ask Ray Farmer about the quarterbacks. That's exactly what happened on Wednesday, when the Browns general manager told NFL Network's NFL Total Access how Josh McCown won the team over in free agency. "I think it's the experience factor," said Farmer in an interview that will air Wednesday at 7 p.m. ET on NFL Network. "When you look at Josh McCown, the guy's played in the National Football League, he's had his relative glimpses of success and, for us, we like the fact that his skill set (fits) what he can accomplish in this offense." The Browns, of course, have a new coordinator in John DeFilippo, but we don't expect the team's approach to alter drastically from Kyle Shanahan's 2014 attack. Still lacking a premier passer, Cleveland is a candidate to lead the AFC in carries, with Farmer saying that "our offensive line gives us a competitive advantage." Unlike last year, there will be no separate playbook for Johnny Manziel, the second-year passer fresh from rehab. The former Texas A&M star lost the respect of some veteran teammates by the way he prepared -- or, didn't prepare -- for a handful of late-season starts as a rookie. People around the building see a change.
Ray Farmer: Manziel 'seems dialed in and focused'
